Celebrate Wisconsin's Legacy of Industrial Design Innovation.
UW-Stout Industrial Design and School of Art & Design are sponsoring the 3rd Annual Design Wisconsin event showcasing the impacts of Industrial Design on Wisconsin's Culture, Commerce, Community and Brand—Past, Present, and Future.
It is a little known secret that Wisconsin is a hub for product innovation - our mission is to showcase and celebrate prominent Wisconsin-based Industrial Design teams and their work. We hope this format will inspire participants and strengthen connections within our Industrial Design community, as well as cultivate new ones!
The event includes an open house of major Wisconsin Design/Manufacturer groups. In the past, these have included TREK, Milwaukee Tool, Kohler, Mercury Marine, Polaris, Fiskars, Oshkosh and many more. There will be a keynote address by Milwaukee Tool and potentially other visiting dignitaries. The event also features the Milwaukee Chapter of the Industrial Designers Society of America presenting 2024 Student Merit Awards and student work.
The show is a FREE event on May 18, 2024, from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. at Milwaukee Tool's downtown headquarters in Milwaukee, WI.
